business in america, which we will do. there's an argument there, that's true. i don't think proprietary trading caused the crisis, but there are problems with it. we have not just had the problems of the crisis. we've had problems of individual investors and others not being treated fairly. paul volcker, who is certainly no enemy of wall street, has been the one most concerned about the proprietary trading. and we're talking about saying, if you have a deposit insurance guarantee with the federal government, you shouldn't be using that to help do this proprietary trading. the other thing we say is this, i don't want the banks making their money from this kind of trading and investments. i want them to make their money by loans. to some extent, this is aimed at getting the banks more into the lending business, which frankly they've moved away from too far. >> the other critique of this, i've heard, is that it basically targets mainstream banks, where most americans have an account with bank of america, a citibank, jpmorgan chase, wells fargo. it does not get after the issue of the too bi

on america. texas democratic congressman sylvester rayes chairs the house intelligence committee. he got a private briefing from the president's count terrorism team on wednesday. mr. chairman, thank you for joining us. i'm not sure you can answer this question, but what do you know, what can you share with us about these so-called credible threats against america coming out of yemen? >> well, we should always understand that al qaeda has as its biggest priority continuing to attack our country. so that's obviously not news but it is something that should be foremost in everyone's mind and also in the way we carry on our duties both here in congress and obviously the administration who has the responsibility of our national security. >> were you briefed on new threats, sir? >> yes. >> congressman, when it comes to these new threats, when do you think -- there's always that line, but are we at the point where some of these threats should be made public so that the public can help? i mean clearly the public was a big factor on that airplane in stopping this terrorist from completing his te

coast, maybe as late as 10:00 a.m. look, this is going to be america's recovery. america's probably going to have to take the lead on figuring out what to do in haiti. and that's why we should be expecting to hear that from the president, all the efforts that the government's going to be doing. >> we'll get back to that. and chuck, with the latest from the white house there, but let's get to the rundown. as day is breaking in haiti, we're getting a clearer picture of just how devastating this is. but there's still so much not known at this hour, including how many have perished. untold numbers, likely in the thousands, witnesses say. reports on the ground say dazed residents are stacking victims' bodies in the streets amid mountains of rubble. buildings are flattened. whole neighborhoods wiped out. we, as chuck said, are awaiting a statement from the president this morning. meantime, here's the u.s. ambassador to haiti speaking about this tragedy. >> it's a major catastrophe for haiti. we have gone through all this before. i'm quite sure that the hatian people, courageous as they ar
are asking us, all across the country, even in the most liberal state in america, arguably, massachusetts, to defeat this health care bill, to start over on a truly bipartisan basis and get it right. i think that's the message from yesterday. and we're looking forward to welcoming senator scott brown to the senate. >> sir, no question this is a big morning for republicans, but i'm sure you couldn't help but notice the strategy scott brown ran up in massachusetts. he did not run overtly as a republican, he didn't cloak himself in the republican party. in fact, he all but eschewed the republican label. what lesson do you draw from that in terms of your own playbook going forward and what it means about what he thinks of republicans, of the republican party's own problems. >> well, i think how you run depends upon the state you're in. he was running in a state with 12% republicans, three times as many democrats, and a large body of independents. he ran a very, very smart campaign, even in my state, which is 2 to 1 democratic, i don't usually put republican in my ads. how you run in terms of

and when the president praised the importance of america as a job creator. very classic republican and conservative ideas. lots of overlap where both parties stood. lots of energy in the room. i was particularly watching for tone, because we knew in advance that there was a quiet reminder to members of the republican party not to do anything that could be interpreted as disrupt ir ive. i had my moo eeyes on joe will was very polite in his demeanor. and generally republicans were on the quieter side. there were murmurs. there was eye checking and that sort of thing but no boos, no screaming out, nothing like that, which even at other times would appear in state of the union addresses. so it was an interesting room and it was colder than you can imagine. they had turned the thermostat way, way, way down beginning at noon. >> is that a personal complaint, kelly, saying turn the air conditioning on? >> no. i was struck by it. it was almost as if members were in snug gies. they were chilled. >> thanks for the visual, kelly. >> i'm here for you. >> kelly o'donnell with the best seat in t
forward? >> reporter: i think what the health care bill has shown america and the administration, just because you have 60 members of your democratic caucus does not mean you have 60 votes. if you look back at all the major pieces of legislation, there have only be a handful, a smattering of republicans joining democrats. i think, yes, we should see more of that, especially if brown were to win, because then the climb gets much steeper to pass his agenda. >> ken strickland reporting for us from the hill. shocking to me this is the first lunch the president is having with george voinovich. >>> now to the latest on haiti. the numbers this morning are just staggering. authorities estimate now the death toll could be as high as 200,000 people. 1.5 million hatians are living on the streets, completely homeless. today, the u.s. troop level in the region will now hit 14,000. soldiers on the ground are handing out much-needed supplies and the u.s. government now believes it can feed 1 million people a day, every day. but here's a happier number. 61. that's the number of orphans heading from ha
